The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
A reformed convict plastic surgeon that now performs illegal eye replacement surgery.
Doctor Snot-omon Eddie.
Doctor Solomon Eddie, formerly Solomon Pierri, is a plastic surgery and eye transplantation expert. At some point before 2054, Detective John Anderton of the Baltimore Police department arrests Doctor Solomon for making tapes of himself setting his plastic surgery patients on fire. In prison, Doctor Solomon is frequently raped by a burly man who calls him Nancy. The doctor spends his time in the prison library studying any medical texts he can find. His favorite involves live-eye transplants. In 2054, he works as a black market eye transplant surgeon with his "lovely" assistant. Doctor Solomon Eddie also has severe allergies.
Fugitive cop John Anderton contracts Doctor Solomon Eddie to replace his eyes so that eye scanner cannot identify the rogue Pre-Crime agent. Doctor Solomon Eddie is all too happy to oblige for the right price. Due to Doctor Solomon's background with Anderton, he gives him a slight discount. Before the surgery, the doctor sneezes and wipes the mucous on his hands. He calms Anderton by saying that the wide-spectrum anti-biotics he is going to pump into Anderton will prevent infection. He then uses Anderton's lowered guard to stab him with a sedative needle. Anderton is confused and soon passes out from the sedative. Doctor Solomon Eddie goes to work performing the delicate eye operation. He uses the eyes of a willing or unwilling donor known as "Mr. Yukamoto."
He completes the surgery, congratulates John Anderton on his new eyes, and gives him recovery instructions. There is a sandwich and milk in the refrigerator and ropes to guide him to key areas of the apartment. Most importantly, he tells Anderton to not remove the bandages around his eyes for a certain amount of time. Not following this instruction results in blindness. Also, "never scratch."
Personality and Traits
Doctor Solomon Finds Himself in this Position a lot.
Doctor Solomon Eddie is psychotic. His perversion involved setting people on fire, but his time in prison changes him. He realizes who he is and what he wants to be. Also, he does not hold a grudge against the man who arrested him as he does not set John Anderton on fire during surgery.
